Friday 17th August our fundraisers will be out in Swanage for our annual flag day street collection. If you see them please stop and pop your spare change in their collection box. If you're really lucky you might even catch a glimpse of the RNLI's mascot, 'Stormy Stan'.
Stormy will be out with his collection bucket too sometime in the afternoon.
Then don't forget its live music, bar and BBQ at Prince Albert Gardens by the entrance to the pier 6pm - 11pm.
We've got live music from 2 great local bands including headliners 'Ratrace'.
With the start of Lifeboat Week 2018 approaching fast we're still looking for a few more generous local businesses to sponsor a barrel of beer for our bar. By sponsoring a barrel it means that even more of the money we raise can go towards running the lifeboats here at Swanage. In return we'll give you an A3 poster behind our bar and a receipt to keep your accountant happy!
If you'd like to contribute then please phone the lifeboat station on 01929 423237.
Our VIP boat and boathouse tours are back for Lifeboat week 2018
If you've ever fancied having a personal tour onboard our all-weather lifeboat then our VIP tours are for you. Numbers are strictly limited so that you get the chance to have a good look round both our lifeboats, the new boathouse and ask the crew any questions that you have.
The evening starts at 7pm and usually finishes around 9pm when we'll serve up some drinks and canapes. Tickets are £10 and are limited to 24 people. The evening is aimed at adults and older children as some of the questions can get a bit technical at times! If you'd like to come along give the Boathouse a call on 01929 423237.
We're delighted to be able to announce a new event for lifeboat week 2018. In a first for Swanage we will be showing 'The Greatest Showman' at Prince Albert Gardens (by the pier) on Friday 10th August at 8.45pm.
'The Greatest Showman' is a bold and original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and the sense of wonder we feel when dreams come to life.
Gates open from 7.30pm for picnics, please bring something warm and your own seating
